Hot on the heels of the phenomenal meeting in Gateshead in 2013, I am very excited to be Chair for this year’s scientific programme and welcome you to the North West for what I am sure will be another memorable meeting. The venue, The Point at Emirates Old Trafford, home of the Lancashire Cricket Club offers something different again for this year’s BMUS meeting. The space and vistas are striking with plenty of sporting history embedded in the old pavilion, the heart of our meeting rooms. Emirates Old Trafford is just an easy, quick metro tram ride away from all the attractions of central Manchester with all its fantastic venues to choose from for meeting up for post meeting drinks and networking – and of course some Christmas shopping if you can tear yourself away from this outstanding programme.
My brilliant team of ultrasound experts have developed a programme that I am certain you will find informative, educational and supports your specific field of practice. The programme aims to present the latest in ultrasound techniques, as well as giving delegates an understanding of where ultrasound examinations sit within patient pathways. A range of clinical experts have been invited to the meeting to give us their perspective of how our service impacts on patient management. Ultrasound technologies rarely stand still and practice is changing in response. There are technological developments which are now at the forefront of this new wave of diagnostics and intervention. With the ongoing and substantial support of the Ultrasound Equipment Manufacturers and Technical Exhibition, we aim to bring you the latest in ultrasound imaging and give you the opportunity to see how and where experts are using these in practice.
The highlight of the social programme is the Annual Awards and Conference Dinner which this year is kindly supported by Toshiba Medical Systems UK. The dinner will be held at Old Trafford football ground, home of Manchester United. Love or hate them or if you are indifferent to football this is the must experience social event of the year, with a drinks reception in the club’s magnificent Museum and Trophy Room, followed by a dinner dance in the restaurant overlooking the famous pitch. I strongly advise you to book early for this stellar event and hope you will join us to celebrate the business of ultrasound in style.
